Title: (DE) AUSRICHTEN VON MASCHINENLESBAREN CODES NACH DRUCKERPIXELN
(EN) ALIGNING MACHINE-READABLE CODES TO PRINTER PIXELS
(FR) ALIGNEMENT DE CODES EXPLOITABLES PAR MACHINE SUR DES PIXELS D'IMPRIMANTE
Abstract:
(EN) A printer processor (100) in which accuracy of a printed image is essential. The printer processor (100) receives exact pixel characteristics from a target printer (180), and instructs the target printer (180) to exactly reproduce the desired image after eliminating any distortions introduced by scaling or rotational factors.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un processeur (100) pour imprimante, dans lequel la précision de l'image imprimée est essentielle. Ledit processeur (100) pour imprimante reçoit des caractéristiques de pixels exactes provenant d'une imprimante cible (180) et il ordonne à ladite imprimante cible (180) de reproduire exactement l'image désirée après avoir éliminé toute distorsion éventuelle due à des facteurs d'échelle ou de rotation.
